Kickup Original is a tasty non-tobacco snus. Containing a more traditional snus flavour, it combines a gentle fruitiness with soft overtones of bergamot and liquorice. This creates an interesting blend of a slight pepperiness with a sweetness coming from the citrus essence. The overall taste is deliciously similar to that of a refreshing cup of tea. The slightly plumper than usual pouches sit comfortably under the lip as the flavour nicely permeates.
Kickup Original comes in a fresh white can. The simple green letters and logo promote the natural element to emphasise the notion that this is a healthier option to tobacco filled snus. The pouches themselves are neat and fat, a regular portion size. Though not a tobacco product, the mixture the pouch contains has a tobacco-esque look to it, and emits a delightful scent.
Whilst it does not contain any nicotine, Kickup Original still delivers a nice little kick when placed under the lip. This is from the special ingredient Guarana that has replaced the nicotine and which offers the user an excellent little energy boost. A great snus, it is ideal for those trying to quit smoking or indeed get away from nicotine all together.
